Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees nothing funny in Marcus Rashford-Cristiano Ronaldo comparison. The United head coach can name four areas where the two are similar enough while numbers can provide a clearer picture.

Hopefully, Marcus will be at this level in 10-12 years:
While it's premature to suggest Rashford is better even at the same age, the 22-year-old surely doesn't deserve the abuse he's had from fans over recent years.
Marcus will beat his best ever season tally (13 goals) when he scores another. In fact, he would already be a proud record-maker if the goal against Aston Villa had been attributed to him, not to Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton.
